Organza bags and Jewellery care.
Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings are one of a girls favourite things, personally I have lost count of the amount of jewellery I have in my jewellery boxes. My extreme love for jewellery allows me keeping designing jewellery and also spending money on buying those I can’t take my eyes off once I step into a jewellery store or even in the local market. We can all boast of having loads or little jewellery but the most important question is- are you taking care of your jewellery? I have a friend who had loads of beautiful and expensive jewellery which she bought for her wedding, I had the privilege of being with her when she was getting her things set out- what caught my eye was where she got the jewellery from—take a guess? She got it from a pile of other beaded jewellery all tangled up together!!
On seeing this sorry sight for her care of her jewellery- I screamed! Yes I screamed! Why? Because
- Her wedding jewellery is very expensive- am talking about white gold here costing several of thousands of Naira
- They were all tangled up with very inexpensive beads in a little pouch
I expected her to get a special jewellery box or a pouch just for her wedding jewellery
I also expected her to keep each piece of jewellery in separate pouches (e.g. earrings and bracelet I a single pouch and a necklace in a single pouch) and I also expected all single pouches be kept in one big pouch- housing all jewellery.
I suggest keeping your jewellery in pouches because of the following reasons-
They are in expensive and very affordable- you can get a pouch for as low as 100naira in the market. Pouches come in different fabric- I would suggest getting an organza or chiffon pouch as against a velvet pouch because velvet is more expensive
- They are easy to carry about- if you are one who loves to wear your jewellery at the venue of the party or one who is always in a haste when leaving for an event. All you need is grab your jewellery in your organza pouch and dash out the door. Though I would advise you double check you have hooks for your earrings in the pouch too! This is because I have been many times a victim of dashing out with my jewellery pouch only to realize I have no hooks included in the pouch…well I guess we know how that story ends *long face* I end up at the event with no earrings due to my forgetfulness to include hooks a night before!
- They are easy to maintain- all you need to do is add some hand wash or detergent such as Ariel or Omo or Persil into a bowl of warm water, dip your pouches inside and wiggle for a bit. Rinse in cold water, hang and allow to dry.
I hope you enjoyed the article and now know how to care for your jewellery in a more affordable and easy way.
Till we speak again next week—when we shall be talking about “How to care for your different types of jewellery”
Have a lovely day.
